McKINNEY, TEXAS - Emerson Process Management's Regulator Technologies business broke ground today to mark the start of construction of its $25 million global headquarters. As a corporate anchor tenant in The Gateway development at the interchange of U.S. 75 and the Sam Rayburn Tollway, the new global Regulator Technologies headquarters will house a world-class research facility and "flow lab" that will enable the company to test its regulator products in real-world plant conditions.
The three-story, 128,000-square-foot building will also include offices, a customer training center, and a fitness center for approximately 130 highly skilled, professional employees in engineering, research and development, marketing, sales, finance and procurement.
The architect for the project is Fox Architects and the general contractor is Tribble & Stephens Constructors, Ltd. LML Group LLC will serve as the project management firm, and Kimley-Horn and Associates as the civil engineering firm. Clive Samuels & Associates, Inc. is the mechanical and electrical engineering firm, and Larson Engineering is the structural engineering firm. Construction is expected to be complete by late 2013.
Emerson Process Management delivers automation and process control technologies and services to the oil and gas, power, chemical, refining, and other industries. Its Regulator Technologies business offers more pressure regulator and relief valve solutions than any other manufacturer in the world. McKinney and the North Dallas area are home to key oil and gas equipment suppliers that Emerson serves.
The current Regulator Technologies headquarters is located at 310 East University Drive in McKinney. Emerson has been a part of the McKinney community for more than 50 years and is a strong supporter of charitable initiatives, including education, community welfare, and arts. The headquarters relocation is made possible through a partnership between the City of McKinney and Emerson.
